Media powerhouse and expert critic Bill O'Reilly's most comprehensive book yet offers new insight into the current state of life in America. In examining the social, political, and economic aspects of our daily lives, O'Reilly exhausts every bureaucratic system to see what our higher-ups are doing to take care of us, and points out the people and institutions who are failing the average American. At the same time, he makes one of his most profound and daring journeys yet, as he ventures to question how much genuine altruism is left in a society that thrives on a competitive, increasingly self-indulgent ethos. With thoughtfulness and candor, O'Reilly targets our biggest problems, and offers sage advice on how to regain control and trust in these troubled times.

O'Reilly says it took him a long time to get the hang of on-air journalism, but he definitely gets it now. Following on the success of "The O'Reilly Factor" and "The No-Spin Zone," he tackles all the people and institutions that ought to have your well-being at heart but probably don't. Parents (if you're lucky), government (forget it), church (has lost its way), the media (are you kidding?) all come in for scrutiny. He has many constructive solutions--for example, pick associates carefully--and puts them forth forcefully. He sounds by turn exuberant, cautionary, defensive, and, above all, persuasive. He concludes that you need to watch out for yourself, and, despite missteps, he has. Above all, he's a superb salesman of ideas.
